Forever Yours, Faithfully - Isn't Good Enough Anymore

Do you remember this song?

Oh, how I loved to hear Steve Perry sing about forever, faithful love. The devotion. The dedication. The will to make it through trials and miles. *sigh*

But as I rode in the van with my kids, listening to their music, I came to the conclusion that Forever-Yours-Faithfully-devotion just doesn't cut it anymore.

No, devoted love in today's songs would catch a grenade, throw one's hand on a blade, jump in front of a train, even take a bullet through the brain. Oh, that's so much more romantic, don't you think?
Brian and I laughed about it in the van, but it's no laughing matter to Bruno!

*Feelin' a little 'old' as I think about yester-year, and how things are changing.*

I feel your pain, my friend. Really, I do.

Leah - As I listen to the 'old music' played at Edgewood, I try to imagine songs like Grenade being played in retirement centers in 70 years. I'm having a hard time with that picture. LOL!

I feel ya.

I miss me some Journey and Aerosmith and all those great bands. But I suppose the times they are a changin'.

Mary - And Air Supply, and REO Speedwagon, and Chicago, and... ;o)
Yeah, times are changin'. We're all getting older. Hmmm. Wonder what those guys are up to these days??!!

so not a fan of the "grenade" song... haha!

MUCH rather hear Steve Perry, any day of the week. :o)

Jodi - I highly favor Steve Perry, as well. But I do get a kick out of hearing my kids belt out Grenade (and other 'hits' of today). *grin*
